On the same day, the Vietnamese delegation on the ship, led by Colonel Nguyen Cong Son, Deputy Political Commissar of the Naval Region 4, paid courtesy visits to Commander of Tanin Tharyi Naval Region - Zwe Win Myint, Commander of Myeik Coastal Military Zone - Maj. Gen. Thaung Htike Shwe, and Minister in charge of security and border affairs of Tanin Tharyi region - U Kyaw Zaya.

At the meetings, representatives from Myanmar’s Navy appreciated the Vietnamese Navy’s goodwill to foster friendship and cooperation between the two navies by sending ship HQ 012-Ly Thai To to visit Myanmar.

Son showed his belief that the visit will help intensify mutual understanding and trust between the two armies, and boost collaboration between the two navies.

The Vietnam People’s Navy wants to maintain exchange and cooperation activities with the Myanmar side so as to promote bilateral defence cooperation as well as Vietnam-Myanmar relations, he said.
